Examine the arrow diagram below. Homework Help ✎
Polygon is a parallelogram → area of the polygon equals base times height.
Write this conjecture as a conditional (“If, then”) statement.
If a polygon is a parallelogram, then its area equals its base times its height.
Write the converse of this conditional statement. Is the converse statement a true statement?
If a polygon is a triangle, then its area equals one half its base times its height.
Write a similar conjecture about triangles. Write it once as a conditional statement and once as an arrow diagram.
Write the converse of your triangle conjecture from part (c). Is the converse statement true?
